We had lunch here with my wife and our baby. They have different meals on special per day and we both ordered the Monday special burger for under $12 each and that not only was quite a big burger but also very yummy. High-chair available for my baby. Interior deco is quite relaxing too. If you look for good and... More

My son attended a function here as part of a group. The restaurant knew they were coming but the service was slow and disorganised. The food came out at different times to the point my son was eating on his own after others had finished. It took so long that several kids left before they got their dessert which was... More

Our group also had the chicken strip burger, an omelette and the fish pie. We all enjoyed our dinner very much! The service... More

Very average food. Drinks expensive. Full of kids running about. OK for a family with small children. Not ideal for a quiet meal.

This was uniformly appalling food. Four adults had a very disappointing experience that spoiled our night out in a lovely city.

Seriously... you can't fault this place. It's set up kinda like a 1960s US diner / surf shack... there's a great range of food on the menu and they don't mind adapting it if you ask (I'm vegan)... the portions are enormous and taste amazing. Oh yeah, it's seriously good value too with most mains being between $15 and $25.

Thank msmouse999
